Nice and famous place, quick service especially for the beers. Classic type of Beerhall food, but good. Except for the fries, prefer the potatoes. Sausages are great. Pork leg as well. A sure pick, not if you are on diet...

This is a great place to visit with groups. It is near the town center, honest plain food and service a we know in Germany. For a couple it is rather noisy and not very romantic. God prices for basic food.

This place is also very good, like other German pubs. I can recommend salad with spicy gambas (prawns) and spicy gambas with spaghetti. Beer was nice. A lot of customers during the week and kind staff.

Enjoyed a proper Wiener schnitzel with some pils at this restaurant. The food was good and the pils was excellent. Service was also very good.

The restaurant/brewery “Zum Schiffchen“ is situated in the Old Town of Düsseldorf.It is the oldest restaurant in the city and it is a typical restaurant with traditional food and decoration.Usually it is crowded and a reservation is needed.Both the quality of food and service are excellent

Went there with a party of colleagues after a trade show. Very busy but managed to get a table. Sober interior. Quick service. Excellent beer. Excellent schnapps with the herring. Enjoyed a very nice goose after that. On the whole a very pleasant dinner experience.

Big brewery with traditional dishes. It's what you expect from a brewery: large groups, big portions, good beers and quick service.
